Modern Aud recordings rock! Mucho thanks to those guys with the expensive rigs out there collecting it all!

I got love for mp3. Getting the ones from the archive are nice, because they were only compressed one time. MP3 is fine for that purpose, sounds great to me. The danger is in people decoding and recoding the files over and over, which really wouldn't happen much in my opinion, since you'd have to decode them to wav, then recode them to mp3. I don't think many people would do that. They would just be copying the original mp3, or ripping the disc and burning it without recoding.

So coming down on mp3 for that reason isn't as bad as it sounds. But I agree with lossless archiving and making mp3 available. Great thing is, both can be done here!

No doubt that modern recording equipment has allowed for a 100% sound quality improvement compared to days of old. Without the tapers this site would cease to exist. So, no knock against any of them. It's a fascinating hobby and I'm sure with it brings a tremendous amount of satisfaction. Keep the music flowing!!!
